  1. Past hour
  2. Well that and the laws forbidding it and enforcement. Or are you saying thoughts and prayers are only what the pro-choice people offer? Maybe you are on to something there with those that would not choose it yet support the right to.
  3. Don't forget the latest part: "Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed"

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    It pisses me off that Jon was shafted like that. Look, I understand his arc is about duty over love. I get it. I just don't agree with him being exiled to the Wall under those circumstances. You're telling me his brother, who is now King (wtf?), and his loving sister, now Queen of the North, would just let the goddamn Unsullied determine his fate and let him rot at the Wall after everything he's done for the Realm? They were totally ok with a few foreign soldiers telling them that the Hero of Westeros has to go die at the Wall? Oh yeah, wtf is the point of the Night's Watch? White Walkers are dead and the 25 remaining wildlings are friendly to the realm. Also, there's a giant ass hole in the wall so what's the point in manning any of the castles? It should have been his choice. The North is who he is, and he's bonded with the Wildlings the entire series. Had he chosen to forego the Crown despite his birthright, and instead spend his time with the people in the far north that he saved, away from the politics of the realm that destroyed so many lives, then I would be ok with it. The show framed it as the Unsullied and Dothraki wanted him to suffer, so he gets sent into exile, which is bull**** considering his family now controls all power in the Kingdom. Also, the unsullied left and the Dothraki evaporated after that scene, so again...why is he being forced into exile? ****ty writing. I hate D&D for shafting the ending to this incredible cinematic opus of a show. Rushing the hell out of the final seasons and destroying the narrative that has been building for years because they wanted to hurry up and start destroying the Star Wars franchise next really pisses me off.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    What a shame. The guy finally has some of his personal stuff behind him and can focus on playing ball and this happens. Hopefully its not as bad as people seem to think it is. I guess I should hold off on the funeral until the MRI results come in.

    This was maybe the one big flaw in the episode for me. I don't think it's unbelievable that he would refrain from killing Jon immediately because of fear of causing more chaos and endangering the people under his command, but I wish we had gotten more of an explanation for that and for him backing down later (though weeks have passed at that point and he's had time to think everything over) I suspect Grey Worm isn't around at this point in the books though, so they might have made things trickier for themselves by keeping him around. They could have had someone kill him also, but they might have been worried about the outrage and decided to let him go to Naath to make good on his and Missandei's earlier wishes.

    Maybe the Bama players utilize the "optional" part of OTA's and choose to go work out at their alma mater, instead ?
  8. Legally, a fetus isn't a person until a birth certificate is issued. Until then, scientifically it's a parasite existing off a legal female's body. Emotionally, people can think what they want about what a collection of cells is. That doesn't give them the right to legislate female bodily autonomy.

    I agree completely. The fade to black and then slight time skip was damning. Should have shown Jon being taken into custody with some justification behind it.

    Slippery conditions normally don't cause injuries. It's when the foot plants and all the stress of stopping/changing momentum are put on a joint. What is it with this team? Is the practice field built on an ancient native burial ground or something? This is just a bunch of bad mojo.

    I re-read this, and maybe the cryptic message here is that we switch to a 4-3 ???
  12. I just got a Sleeper notification that Guice will be 100% and full-go at training camp.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    Eh, reading the actual article, it doesn't seem they are very split on impeachment itself, more just if it should begin immediately or wait until things are further investigated.
  14. I see JP Finlay tweet out that he is on the field but not wearing a jersey. I guess that means he is not at 100% / cleared, otherwise he wouldn't have bothered with the tweet. We are at 8+ months. He had a lot of complications so delays shouldn't come as a surprise, if indeed what you heard is correct.

    Arya did mention in Season 6(?) that she wanted to go West of Westeros. Its just to bad that that planet is flat, and she will fall off the edge.
  16. Well that comes back to me seeing it as a human life for me. Its not about imposing morality/views, its about protecting a human life that trumps all. If you believe its not a life than that argument works fine. In essence what you are saying to me, in how I view this, why should they be denied the choice of killing a person just because I believe its wrong. Because I see it as killing a person, thats kind of a big deal. Again, obviously others do not agree to this which is the disconnect here, but I cant just be okay with it. To try to put it in perspective. The slave owners in the south saw slaves as less than human, they had no rights, they were nothing, just property. The people who wanted to abolish slavery saw it for what it was, an awful thing, a tragedy. Of course the slave owners thought that there wasnt anything wrong with what they were doing and didnt think those trying to abolish slavery had any right to tell them whats wrong or not. Those against slavery didnt have slaves, no direct impact for them, but they saw it was wrong and couldnt just ignore it. I am not trying to equate the two, but trying' to give an example that I think we can all agree on that will give you a better perspective for why I couldn't just ignore it. Im typing this fast so hopefully I was able to get that across clearly.
  17. Yeah... I’m a little fatigued from it. Especially with how the mueller report has ended. I dont need confirmation hes a bad guy that does bad things or did them to get where he is. I need someone that’s actually going to hold him accountable. Currently best prospect is the electorate in 2020

    There is also no world in which Worm was slicing throats of men in the streets on his queen's command, but decides to let his queen's killer walk

    The last movie you saw......GO! (After you read the OP!!!!)

    I watched this yesterday and it was ****ing awesome. AWESOME. A+. Got a little dusty in the room a few times, which was weird.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    With the Foster injury we instantly became less interesting.

    I think the major end points will be the same in the books, which is why the actual events seem plausible but lack development.
  22. This is pretty much the most exciting thing for me in this thread. The rest? Unfortunately, El Donaldo has proven to be teflon. Seems like a lot of these "GOT HIM!" threads have been started over the years and they all end up fading away.
